    Re: things like that

    .
    Probably the more common is 'things like that', since we more usually deal with single examples:

    I don't like tap-dancing, or things like that.
    She made us late for the movie; I hate things like that.


    If there are two or more examples, then 'things like those' would be more appropriate:

    Ooh! Turnovers, tarts, raisin buns-- I like things like those.
    .
